Subject: bread crumb
C.C. Rider springs almost from whole cloth on us in late 1979. This is the beginning of a run where it is played pretty frequently for a couple of years. It is a song that takes advantage of Jerry's favored tone in these years, which is probably why it is played so much.

Subject: Rockin' the Mississippi
Love all the great reviews about those at the show, I wasn't, but what a rockin' set. I've never read much about this festival, but this may be one of the better shows the Dead played in a festival.

Great fun throughout, not the best show ever, but great energy, the band sounds really engaged. Brent was really "in the band" by now. One I play regularly

Subject: My first Dead Show
My buddy and I were 18 and supposed to go together. Due to circumstances (and drinking) beyond our control the weekend before he got grounded and wasn't able to go. I'd never made the trip to Illinois from West County before and parked in a big field which turned into a giant mud pit after the concert. I spent hours pushing cars out of the way before my beater vehicle made it to the road. Great show, overwhelming experience. I remember seeing the taper section and being blown away by the idea of recording the show. Really fun time.

Subject: No Big River?
And, no Mississippi Half Step? Sometimes I wonder what the boys were thinking when there were certain shows that call for obvious set-list selections. Good show anyway!

Subject: He's Gone...
First show after the death of Keith Godchaux. Maybe 3,000 in a small outdoor shed close by the river. An amazing thunderstorm blew up for the second set, It poured rain from the beginning of He's Gone till Space... everyone except for the first 10 rows or so got soaked! Kudos to the intrepid taper that provided this gem!
He's Gone seemed a tribute an absent friend, as the end really gets deep! I remember dancing in 3 inches of water by he board during the Other One thinking I would be electrocuted any second and not caring a bit! Enjoy!

Subject: HOT DAMN!
This is quite the show from a rather uncirculated year, 1980. Hot, hot, hot! Kick @$$ versions of T.L.E.O., Tennessee Jed, Althea, Minglewood, and Deal! A wildly energetic first set leads into a way trippy second! Brent is playing HARD on his modified Fender Rhodes keyboard and tapping out that beautiful "toy piano" sound that some hate, but I LOVE! Usually Brent's solo songs inspire me to sing, "You don't know how, easy it is, to hate your songs!" but even Easy to Love You caught my ear in this show! Don't miss out on this hidden gem!

Subject: Mississippi River Madness
This is a rocking, classic early 80's show. Jerry is cookin' and the band sounds great. Second set is very strong, esp. pre-drums. Great China>Rider, Estimated and He's Gone. Love the unusual event/venue--wish I could have been there I's sure it was off the chain!!

Great sound quality on this one. Thanks All!! The band is sounding pretty flow-like, getting oiled up for the sdecond set. This sow is just across the river from where I live. Didn't even know about it then, but LOVING IT NOW!!
